“… consider the northern goshawk, which lives in deep forests and earns its living by chasing down other birds.
without benefit of road markings, warning signs, traffic lights and speed limits, the goshawk zooms around its wild neighborhood in relative safety. as it hotly pursues a ruffed grouse or wood duck, the goshawk may fly just above the ground at 40 miles an hour, mirroring the unpredictable twists and turns of its prey. although the goshawk’s wingspan approaches four feet, superb vision and instant reflexes help it avoid collisions with countless branches.”
“when they become agitated by an approaching storm they attempt to climb out of the bottles and trigger a small hammer which strikes a bell.”
mainly i just like the name of it.
